Bus falls into a deep canyon in Pakistan, killing 19 people

Pakistan, Quetta — Heavy rains in southwestern Pakistan caused passenger buses to slide off mountain roads and into deep canyons, killing 19 people and killing 12 people. I was injured. A government official said.

Mahtab Shah, assistant administrator in the Shirani district of Baluchistan, said about 35 passengers are traveling by bus. He said rescue workers were looking for survivors in the destroyed vehicle and the wreckage of the surrounding countryside.

Shah said the bus seemed to slip on a wet road in heavy rain, and the driver lost control of the vehicle that had fallen about 200 feet (61 meters) into the canyon.

In Pakistan, fatal road accidents are common due to poor road infrastructure, ignoring traffic laws, and poor vehicle maintenance. Twenty-two people were killed in a similar accident last month when a bus fell into a canyon in the Kira Saifuler district.
